Green Spark Volunteer

Everyone knows gardening keeps you fit, but spending quality time in the garden can also have enormous benefits for mental wellbeing, personal development and recovery.

As well as offering the chance to learn practical skills, taking part in group gardening sessions helps people gain confidence, reduce their isolation, develop their social and communication skills and prepare for living independently. 

We're looking for Green Spark volunteers to help us design and lead gardening sessions around a variety of services. 

Description of duties:

  • Lead designated gardening sessions at a chosen SHP service
  • Plan and lead gardening activities for each session
  • Prepare materials and equipment for each session
  • Deal with any issues arriving in gardening sessions and speak to the relevant staff members about these
  • Support other volunteers in their role

Support: You will receive support from the Green coordinator in regular one to one meetings (approximately every four weeks).

Supervisor: Green coordinator.

Location: SHP services across London.

Hours: One session per week or fortnights (two-four hours) by arrangement with the supervisor.
